A BOWL OF SOLACE - DES NNOCHIRI
The soup was good. Not too spicy. Just the right amount of shrimp. And were those little things cardamom seeds?
Miguel thought they were.
Rosa ladled more into his bowl. Smiled.
"It'll be fine," she said. "You'll see."
There were the travel arrangements still to make.
Collecting the money.
The tri-state manhunt.
And the small issue of that bullet wound.
Fine. One way of putting it.
